Dietary choices to adjust urinary disturbances, for example, hypocitraturia or aciduria have been investigated for >30 years.1 Low urinary citrate and pH can advance calcium oxalate and uric corrosive stone development, individually. The current American Urologic Association (AUA) rules express that potassium citrate (kcit) treatment ought to be started for patients with intermittent calcium stones and low urinary citrate, and uric corrosive or cystine stone formers with low urinary pH.2 Unfortunately, consistence rates with kcit are poor in light of gastrointestinal results (SEs), helpless tastefulness, enormous pill size3 and cost.4 Rampant expansions in the cost of nonexclusive meds, for example, kcit, happen when drug organizations acquire a piece of the pie of a medication’s creation or supply.5 This has been distinguished as a generally new issue influencing kcit consistence rates. There are various distributions on dietary wellsprings of soluble base and citrate. Wabner and Pak distributed one of the soonest arrangement in 1993 taking a gander at squeezed orange (OJ) as an elective hotspot for citrate to forestall kidney stones.6 what’s more, lemon-based drinks have been assessed broadly in both bench7 and clinical settings.8–10 Changing urinary citrate and pH levels with concentrated lemon separate, lemonade, grapefruit,11 raspberry, and coconut juice12 have had blended outcomes.
